“The Flesh from our Bones”
The hollow black-hearted have nothing to say,
Nothing of value and nothing to trade.
The pillars are broken, the structures unsafe,
The temple is falling and none will be saved.

So weep for a future undone in the past,
Weep for a species that could never last.
The folly of man masquerading as light,
Shines on us all; lost souls in the night.

So Wait
Wait for the rain
To come washing down and save us all.
Let it burn
The hate from our hearts as the flesh from our Bones.

(Bones) in pine boxes push up through the earth,
Digging and clawing and fighting in birth.
As restless in death as we were in our skins,
scratching at bedrock, but still we dig in.

There’s no way we burn,
There’s no way we’ll learn.


(Bones) cry out for compensation,
Wasted on this flawed foundation
Do you remember before it began?

First there was nothing and then there was man.
So then we took our first steps in the light,
Forever tainted before we could fly.
Everything I fear is so far away,
Smashed into pieces till nothing remains.
Here we all stand at the brink of our lives,
Forever haunted behind these dead eyes.

There’s no light,
Only life.


(Bones) cry out for compensation,
Wasted on this flawed foundation.
Broken minds without a reason,
Nothing left but death or treason now.
